LeBron James is better than usIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris speak on the LeBron James situation in which he initmated he was better than us regular folk. Maybe it was just sour grapes on his part after his Miami Heat lost to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, but still, LeBron should have some class. I don't know how Dwyane Wade is going to deal with this for several more seasons. Yeesh! Anyway, give it a LISTEN!

EndScore Report: In Your Face Wade, LeBron, and LeBron Haters

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, Playoffs,

LeBron James is getting criicized big-time, but that's the way it works, isn't it?In this edition of "In Your Face," Chris throws down on Dwyane Wade and LeBron James for allegedly mocking Dirk Nowitzki being sick for Game Four, which the Dallas Mavericks won. Of course, the mocking didn't phase Nowitzki as he and the Mavs then took Game Five to go up in the NBA Finals, three games to two versus the Miami Heat. DV goes after the LeBron haters that think he suddenly stinks. Sure LeBron has only had eight total points in ever fourth quarter during the championship series, but you can't sleep on the production before then that keep the Heat in the games. He had a triple-double in Game Five! If that's disappointing, ask NBA players how they would like to get a triple-double in a regular season game, let alone during the NBA Finals! HEAR IT!

EndScore Report: More on the NBA Finals

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: NBA, Playoffs,

Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki do battle for the NBA titleIt's entirely too hard not to speak about the NBA Finals once again in this edition of EndScore Report. DV and Chris are absolutely loving this match-up between the Dallas Mavericks led by Dirk Nowitzki and the Miami Heat led by Dwyane Wade. LeBron James has disappeared during the NBA Finals during the fourth quarter and he'll need to step it up in order for the Heat to take Game Six and force a final and deciding Game Seven. However, if players such as Jason Terry and J.J. Barea continue to produce, it may be an NBA title for the Mavs despite what the Heat do. LISTEN UP!

December 2009 NBA All Star Potential Starters

Posted by Phil Partington Categories: Editorial, NBA,

LeBron James versus Kobe BryantFan voting is a major folly of the NBA All-Star Game. Each year, NBA fans are allowed to vote to determine which players start in the esteemed game. The problem with this format is that 1) fans on the whole don’t know squat about which players actually deserve the honor, and 2) fans are biased. Since online voting has been allowed, Chinese players, such as Yao Ming, have had an unfair advantage due to their huge popularity in China. This leads to a tainted All-Star Game, where, in all likelihood Yao may be voted in as the starting center for the Western Conference, despite not playing in one single game this season to injury.

With that in mind, here are the players—after considering only the first month of the season—who deserve to start in the 2010 NBA All Star Game in February.

2009-2010 NBA Midwest Division Preview

Posted by Phil Partington Categories: Editorial, NBA,

Tim DuncanIf it weren’t enough that the NBA’s Midwest Division looks much different than last season, a few teams, notably, the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks made key additions, and Rockets’ star big man, Yao Ming, just had to injure himself for the duration of the season. That curveball may open things up for younger teams to move into the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Spurs are seeing its NBA championship window close every year. In response, the team added several key free agents to make a push to compete with the Los Angeles Lakers in the West.

Fantasy NBA: Analysis of First Round

Posted by Alvin Lai Categories: Fantasy, NBA,

LeBron James and Chris Paul

The one-man mock draft has been fun, but as “one man” writing, I would be lucky to get deep into the fourth round before the season opens. Thus, the focus will shift on topics such as analyzing average draft position (or ADP), which will hopefully benefit those still yet to draft.

Fantasy basketball writing, in general, is still dominated by emphasis on roto leagues. Let us take a look at typical first round selections, but from a head-to-head standpoint. Comments will be geared towards a H2H league that employs the standard nine categories (FG%, FT%, 3PTM, Pts, Rebs, Ast, Stl, Blk and TO).
